Describe your life before you had Weight Loss Surgery.
Before my bariatric surgery through Las Vegas Bariatrics I couldn’t sleep well, do stairs, had extreme numbness in my thighs, my self esteem was tanking, and my quality of life was controlled by my need to self sooth through food.

How long were you considering Weight Loss Surgery before you came in?

I had thought about surgery for years but made every excuse in the book, “loose skin,” “easy way out,” “too restrictive”. You name it, I thought it. But I finally choose me. I choose life and one with my family truly living and being here to see them live theirs.

What was it like to work with our team?
Las Vegas Bariatrics team was amazing! So supportive, encouraging, and uplifting. Dr. Hanna is hilarious! Everyone has been so personable and really tries to relate to who I am as a person not so much as a patient. I felt very much in control of my journey but knew when I got nervous, scared, or at a loss, they are there to answer questions or remind me that I can do this.

Describe your life now, after Weight Loss Surgery.

Now that I have had my surgery, I am finally feeling like I can live again! I can dance, walk without being winded, go up and down stairs no problem, my quality of sleep is better, the numbness has decreased, my blood pressure is normal, my labs have been great! And as a PCOS patient, my cycles have been more consistent.
